Second that one. Not to say Daisies of the Galaxy is a bad album by any stretch of the imagination, but I mean... Novocaine, Susan's House, Beautiful Freak, My Beloved Monster, Mental, Your Lucky Day all on one album? Every track is superb. There's a few I can't stand on Daisies of the Galaxy, but take that with a grain of salt because I am one of the only people in the world that I know that rarely if ever likes slide guitar.



This one was recommended to me by a guy at the record store, and it's pretty good. An all girl band that plays some lo-fi pop with punk ferocity and some noisy influences.



Where the hell did this come from? It just showed up in my iPod, and they're damn good. For the most part just an acoustic guitar and 2 girls singing and the occasional violin, and the result is brilliant. I'm starting a thread on them now.

Had this sitting on my HD for well over a year and finally got around to giving it a go. Instrumental 70's progressive rock/jazz fusion featuring Roxy Music's Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno. Not bad at all I have to say.

^ At one point I liked that and wanted to buy a physical copy after a few spins. But the last time I played it it didn't do it for me, must have not been in the mood. I should spin it again soon, though my prog listening has drastically reduced in the past few months.

(2006)

Screw the cynics who wouldn't know good pop music if it cock-slapped them in the face, the first two Vines albums were a great confluence of 60s and 90s pop/rock (to those that cite the big, overplayed hits like 'Ride' I would argue that 'You Really Got Me' is no less annoying)...
The comeback, 'Vision Valley', is pretty much more of the same, with flourishes of baroque and all the harmony vocal overdubs that I am a sucker for. Nicholls (lead singer/guitarist/songwriter) has been accused of ripping off Kurt Cobain's act, and his influence is definitely strong, with the same grunge-era guitar sound, but I think the pop sensibilities over-ride all of that and it owes much more to 90's Britpop than anything else I think.
Their last album was weak however, and I'd like Nicholls to develop his more ambitious, psychedelic style of songwriting that we are only given glimpses of across the first 3 records... Because let's face it another radio-friendly song from these guys with an annoying chorus is not really called for

My least favorite Trail of Dead release. Too raw and stripped down, in a bad sort of way.

I hate the song Ride. I take it from your post it would be worth my time to check out The Vines, I knew I was missing something. That's a really bad song to be honest...





Genius stuff.
